    Why change your mind? There are a lot of ways to put together a good throwadin. I believe there's a guide for using the holy elemental damage auras somewhere around here, and you can also go basic physical with conc or fanat. It's fun stuff :)

    I have yet to see a good dragoon out there. If there are, I'd like to meet them as I want to build one.

    is a dragoon a throw paladin? my old 09 zealot had a 297 cwh and storm on switch and it did a good amount of damage and was fun to use. attack rating was kinda low even with godly charms and fanat, but im sure that can be fixed now.

    Hi I do use throwing in with my smealot, and I have been known in the past to use a throwing weapon in duels from time to time. Also I belive that using a javelin with a pally that uses melee bassed combat skill is a realy good ideal. It can be realy usefull to have a throwing weapon on weapon switch when doing player vs monster for times when they have been curesed with iron maiden. But if you wanted to have a throwing weapon that would be good for zealing and throwing go with throwing axes. Because javs and daggers can only get to 5fps zeal. Wile throwing axes can get too 4fps zeal. Also remaber when you start looking for a weapon high ed and repairs self are the 2 most inportant things to look for. After that things to look for are ar, ias, and ele damage.

    I had an uber dragoon 1.09...
    let me post mods of his javs (BTW 1.09 javs)

    rare ethereal stygian pilum
    55-227 throw damage
    39-200 one hand damage
    67% ED
    +4 min dmg
    +40 dmg (based on clvl)
    +1320 AR (based on clvl)
    1-31 light dmg
    fire resist 12%
    replenishes quantity

    use these mainly for the AR, along with angelic combo and you get a GG dragoon. Although with 1.10 im sure eth lacs would be better.

    Does Vengeance work with throwing weapons? If it does I may try such a build. Using Conviction would mean your thrower wouldnt need much AR.

    EDIT: Wait, I just realized thats impossible. Too bad, couldve been neat.
    EDIT PS: Man I am a zombie today, I need some sleep so I stop asking stupid questions.

    Ya Clay runwalk and alot of it. Do not get hit, even tho you will have a sheild you will be better off with one then with out. Learn to lead your target, throw off screen, and how to use your map. It would be a good ideal to talk with alot of javazons on how they duel because you are alot like one just you do not use lighting fury and what not. But dueling tatics is the same. Like zeal=jab and throwing=(add zon jav skill here). Or you could not use zeal and use alot more aruas. Running out of javs will be a problem tho. Cursaders will be a problem for you, tele might be able to help you with that. If you want to use zeal? Do the smart thing and go with a throwing axe you will then beable to have a 4fps zeal. If you do not then use the javs they shoot farther the last time I tested that.
